Very good course. String algorithms are very important in day today life and one should really know how to solve command problems related to it. This course have described everything so well.
course content was great but i personally feels some difficulties in the implementation part so the course is meant to be more implementation oriented . thank you for the wondorful course

Spent a lot of time trying to solve the last advanced task in the last assignment, but never solved it. I'm not sure if there is a mistake in slides or my misunderstanding, but it was really hard. Thanks to all the instructors.

I liked the general composition and structure of the course and also the quality of assignments. I really liked the BWMatching content covered in this course. I feel that the BWmatching algorithm is not very well-known.

Still stuck at Problem 5 of Week 1, had to left this problem undone.
Wondering if the mentors or professors can send those who completed the course the standard/reference solution/program via Email???

Its a very good course overall. Just felt that towards the end the material got too much to digest, might be a good idea to split the contents of weeks 3 and 4 into 3 or 4 weeks.
por Juan S Z M•
It would be nice if you could deliver the problem's solutions after the course ended. I ran out of ideas for the BetterBWMatching problem and i couldn't overcome the time issues.

A good course giving insight into how important string algorithms are for not only to computer science community but also its use in other disciplines like bioinformatics etc.
por Snehasish S•
Initially the accent was a little bit hard to understand, but after few minutes everything become crystal clear. Extremely useful course content.

Unfortunately the forums go inactive after the first few iterations of the course. One can still learn by doing the programming assignments

Course Content is good. Instructors are not that much active to give answers for the raised questions compared to earlier courses.

Порой не понятно что конкретно надо описать, либо мой уровень программирования не так хорош, чтобы понимать и воспринимать это!
por Milos M•
An awesome course, though a bit more rushed than the other ones. Luckily with the notes, the assignments can be passed.
por DENIS K•
I think it would be more helpful to trade BWT to more practical Polynomial Hashing tricks. Otherwise good course
por Chen L•
The programming assignment should be more clean with detailed instruction in each code file.

week 3 is not understood correctly.
but i read in other source
so i understood perfectly
por Valeriano T•
Very good, although the material in last week is way harder and rushed than the rest.
por Dmitri M•
I have finished the specialization. This course is mostly useful though challenging.
por Roman E•
Some tasks was hard to understand and solve, but it in general it was good.
por Lee B U•
It was good. But its assignment is easy compared to before lecture things.
very good and useful , but the last week algorithm is very complicated
por Saurab D•
Some of the algorithms are too hard to implement but worth the effort.
por LI W•
too complex, and I don't think in the future work I will apply these.
por Sharan S M•
This was a good course. I mostly understood most of the content
algorithms are difficult. lectures are good
Very focused on bioinformatics problems.
por Miguel A M H•
The lectures are a little bit confused
